Technical Data
APG4A (ATG4A, Autophagy Related Protein 4 Homolog A, Autophagin 2)
Autophagy related protein 4 homolog A (ATG4A), also known as autophagin 2, is a 50kD cytosolic cysteine protease mostly found in skeletal muscle and brain. It belongs to the autophagin protein family which is involved in autophagy, a biological process in which endogenous proteins and damaged organelles are destroyed. Human ATG4A shares 100%, 94% and 93% identity with that of chimpanzee, dog and mouse.

Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot, and Immunoprecipitation. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
ELISA: 0.5-1.0ug/ml
Western Blot: 1-2ug/ml
Immunoprecipitation: 25ug/ml
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
Lyophilized powder may be stored at 4C for short-term only. Reconstitute to nominal volume by adding sterile 40-50% glycerol and store at -20C. Reconstituted product is stable for 12 months at -20C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
